Porthmadog was built in the early nineteenth century, as a consequence of the Cob barrier. It was the main harbour at the mouth of the Glaslyn River. Just outside Porthmadog is the beautiful small town of Borth-y-Gest. From here the views back to Porthmadog and Portmeirion are a delight.
The path from Borth-y-Gest to Morfa Bychan is sandy and mostly level with just one steep (with steps) section to navigate.
